Review: Shirley Jones: A Memoir

Shirley Jones: A Memoir
Shirley Jones: A Memoir by Shirley Jones

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Disappointing in almost every way. The early chapters about her childhood and early career were actually really lovely but once she started on her sexual escapades...awful. Surely (pun intended) there were other events in her life of substance! It isn't that I didn't want to read about Jack Cassidy--I did!--but what did they *talk* about? Does she have any women friends? What about her views on popular music and the marginalization of traditional musical theater? It seemed as if she only has opinions about sex. And that is odd.
